Exchange 2010 Mailbox Permissions

Have a query around the ability for a user to access another users mailbox.

Currently in EMC User A can 'send on behalf' of user B.  Does this then mean they automatically see User Bs mailbox within outlook or does User A need to manually allow them permission?

Thanks

No, this means that they can send an email on behalf of this user and it's done from Outlook by going to a New Message, then clicking the Options tab (Outlook 2010; similar in 2007, 2013) then clicking the From button which puts the From section above the To section on the email.  Then they should be able to click a drop down box that allows them to pick who they want to send as.

If they want to see their whole inbox/mailbox in their Outlook they will need Full Access Permission.  To do that, follow this:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676551(v=exchg.141).aspx

They didn't have full mailbox access on exchange

They could still access the mailbox though, so we think its been shared locally in outlook by user b.

If certain folders were visible that is probably the case.  The entire mailbox, thought, usually requires full access.
